I don't know if you know this about me, but six years ago, I was rushed to the hospital. I lost so much blood that I needed six units. I would not have survived without blood donors, who I consider heroes. You are amazing for donating blood, if you ask me! :) Then, in 2012, it happened again. Unfortunately, I don't know if or when I'll need blood again. You can be a hero for others like me who never thought they’d need to rely on blood donations. Save the day. Donate blood with BloodCenter of Wisconsin. Just call 877-BE-A-HERO or visit www.bcw.edu/appt
Donating blood is easy, relatively painless, and takes less than an hour. Each pint can save up to three lives! I encourage everyone who can to give blood as often as you can, especially if you are O-Negative!
